You have to remember that you cannot receive a Chapter 7 case discharge if you have already received a discharge during the past eight years or have received a Chapter 13 case discharge during the past six years. In a Chapter 13 case, you cannot receive a discharge if you have already received a Chapter 7 case discharge that has been filed during the past four years or a Chapter 13 case discharge filed during the past two years. If you have not received any discharge in previous cases of bankruptcy filing and based on why you have not received any discharge, you will be in a position to file again and receive a bankruptcy discharge without facing any time limits.
